State of Decay studio signs new multi-title deal with Microsoft

Microsoft Studios is very happy with State of Decay developer Undead Labs. That's to be expected, since their open-world zombie survival game became the fasting selling original game ever to hit Xbox Live Arcade. The studio's efforts have not gone unrewarded, as founder Jeff Strain has announced a new multi-year, multi-title agreement with Microsoft.

"I wanted to let you know we've signed a multi-year, multi-title agreement to extend our development relationship with Microsoft Studios," Strain wrote on the Undead Labs blog (via Polygon). "We'll be able to share details later this year, but as with State of Decay, we think it's best if we just keep our heads down and build some prototypes before we talk too much. For now, suffice it to say there are big things going on with State of Decay."

The big things that Strain alludes to will likely include an Xbox One follow-up to State of Decay.
